Why are the pilots so big in this sim? Look at the size of the pilots in these vids. http://www.k4.dion.ne.jp/%7Esuppon/
Either our planes are too small or the pilots are too big. I sure hope SoW has bigger planes or smaller pilots.

yeah we need some equilibrium here...or some lithium er sumpn

I'm not gonna sit still for this situation...

this issue is too big for us to just lie down and take it any longer..this ain't broke back mountain boys.

I say we make a stand...and sell cell phones at it - call it a kiosk - we'll make it really big and staff it with little people.

Not sure Ive ever noticed this although now that you mention it at two recent museum visits I was AMAZED how big the planes were ......Gloster Meteor and F86 Sabre are MASSIVE



Incidentally in the link to the Japanese site the second video called Shinden Kai about 3 seconds always makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand up....that maneuver is amazing-much easier with Track IR!!!When will we have graphics like that!?

I stood next to a Hellcat (Looks small compared to our ingame pilots) when we visited the Palm Springs WWII Aviation Museum, and I felt like a tick sitting next to a tarantula. (About 5'6"-7" here) The divebombers (Helldiver, Avenger, etc.) were even bigger.

Although I was rather surprised at how big the B-17 was. It was smaller than I expected it would be.

Ditto on all three. The Hellcat at NASM looked small to me, as did the P-47. The Avengers I've seen are huge.

The B17 seems even smaller inside. I was shocked when getting in one at the local airport. Felt like I was in a tin can.

Well that makes sense, seeing as how it basically is a tin can. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

But yeah, it's small.
